2020 AMA MOTOCROSS NATIONAL POINT STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 8

2020 AMA MOTOCROSS NATIONAL POINT STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 8

With round 8 of the 2020 Pro Motocross Championship coming to an end, we witnessed close battles and a surprise comeback from a former champ. Coming into Lakewood, the weather was cool and crisp letting everyone know that the summer air was officially gone and it was time for Fall. The track was slick but after recent weather, it would end up dry and slippery on the surface but form deep elongated ruts. The altitude was also a challenge for these riders as the drastic elevation change form nearly sea level to over 5,000 feet in the air would have an impact on the rider’s performance.

In the 450 class, we saw an early breakout for Adam Cianciarulo absolutely dominating qualifying while the rest of the competition could not compete with his times. In the 250 class, the fastest two qualifiers, Justin Cooper and Shane McElrath, qualified faster than the 450s did in their first qualifying session. These results would later be visible in the motos as Star Yamaha and Kawasakis would dominate their races.

450 POINT STANDINGS (ROUND 8 OF 9)

Despite not winning, Zach would still remain on top of the 450 class.

After witnessing the spectacle that was qualifying, we were certain that Adam would do well in his races. The lines he was taking at the speed he was hitting them were considerably faster than anyone else. Well that is until three time champ Eli Tomac flipped a switch just like how we saw at WW Ranch and proceeded to prove to everyone that he wasn’t done racing.  Going 3-1 in his motos, we saw a spark in Eli that we haven’t seen in a while. While it was beneficial for him to win, he’s no longer in the points chase for the championship so it actually hindered his teammate, Adam Cianciarulo, from achieving the maximum amount of points he could earn. This setback also gave Zach Osborne the opportunity to make a pass in the second moto to gain even more points. To say we aren’t looking forward to the final round of Pro Motocross in the 450 class would be a straight up lie. This is some of the closest, most exciting racing we’ve seen in a while.

Unfortunately for Adam, his teammate would win the race limiting his point potential.

250 POINT STANDINGS (ROUND 8 OF 9)

Dylan and Star Racing had a successful weekend.

Star Racing would start off the weekend extremely strong and end it on a high note. Star Racing would take the top qualifying positions as well as have the most riders crossing the holeshot at one time. If Star knows how to do anything better than anyone else, it’s getting a blue bike upfront in the pack. After nearly tipping over several times and having a handful of other close calls, Dylan Ferrandis would end up going 1-3. Justin Cooper would end up taking the overall win with Dylan coming in second and Jeremy Martin ending up in third. This gave Dylan a little bit of wiggle room going into the final round of the 2020 AMA Nationals. Now it is just a battle between the two riders Dylan Ferrandis and Jeremy Martin to see who is going to end up as a champion at the final round.
